Professorship of Conveying Engineering and Materials Handling
Welcome to the Professorship of Conveying Engineering and Materials Handling

The professorship for conveyor and material flow technology at Chemnitz University of Technology is headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Markus Golder with the development of efficient conveyor systems. In close cooperation with companies and research institutions, demanding application-related research and development projects are processed at regional, national and international level.

The professorship currently comprises 5 research and working groups:

Textile machine elements
Plastic components and tribology
Application technology of renewable materials
Assemblies and conveyor systems
Vibration conveyor technology and system dynamics

The following main topics will be dealt with:

Main areas of work

  • Development, manufacture and dimensioning of textile traction and load-bearing equipment
  • Development of basic elements of technical logistics, in particular including modified polymers
  • Continuous conveyors for transport and storage technology in manufacturing and processing processes
  • Fundamentals of friction and wear of sliding pairs in traction guide systems
  • Development of continuous conveyors
  • Computer-aided dimensioning of continuous conveyors

The professorship is member of various scientific committees and institutions and has worked successfully on major research projects.
